KO Arena Sunbaked Skirmish is a KO Arena level in Super Mario Bros. Wonder. It is found in Sunbaked Desert's ruins area, which can only be accessed by completing either The Desert Mystery or Valley Fulla Snootles. This level has the player fighting off against several Mumsies, Melon Piranha Plants, Tsubochan and Hammer Bros. throughout the level. This level has one Wonder Seed, and depending on how quickly the player clears the level, they can be rewarded with 10-flower coins.


The player starts in an area where they can choose power-ups, either a Fire Flower, Elephant Fruit, Bubble Flower or Drill Mushroom. The items are endless, so the player can take as many as they need. A pipe above the center leads to the first battle area.

The first battle area has five Mumsies in a cavern with several bridges and crates at different elevations. The irregular terrain makes pulling from their handles difficult, but they can be defeated with power-ups. After all five Mumsies are defeated, the gate to the pipe leading to the second battle area will unlock.

The second battle area has seven orange pipes containing Melon Piranha Plants that aim their seeds at the player. There are three on the ceiling, two on the left wall, and two on the ground. Two blue pipes on either side of the entrance pipe endlessly spawn pots, and a third pipe flush against the right wall spawns an endless stream of Lakitu's Clouds. After all seven Melon Piranha Plants are defeated, the gate to the pipe leading to the third battle area will unlock.

The third battle area has ten Tsubochan and plenty of pots, with some Tsubochan camouflaged between them. The player can jump on them, throw pots, or bump the Brick Blocks or grey blocks they are crawling on to defeat them. Pulling on the handle on the right side of the area will cause an orange block to rise. After all ten Tsubochan are defeated, the gate to the pipe leading to the fourth battle area will unlock.

The fourth and final battle area has four Hammer Bros. standing on Rotating Block structures. Most of the floor consists of two large blocks that slowly sink into the poison below when stood on. After all four Hammer Bros. are defeated, the gate to the pipe leading to the goal will open.

The goal has five Talking Flowers that congratulate the player for clearing the challenge. If the player clears the battle quick enough, they can be rewarded with 10-flower coins from the above pipes. There is a treasure chest on the right of the room, which when opened spawns the Wonder Seed and the stage is cleared.

10-flower coin requirements[edit]

  • 10-flower coin 1: 200 seconds
  • 10-flower coin 2: 150 seconds
  • 10-flower coin 3: 100 seconds



Talking Flower quotes[edit]

  • Whatcha gonna go with? (at the starting area)
    • Tough choice... (if the player waits)
    • Why not pick your favorite?
  • Congratulations! (said by five flowers at once at the finish)
